The foundation of any school ‘fit has got to be the shoes, right? From matching up with that high-school blazer they’ll eventually grow into, to max cushioning underfoot when PE lessons come around, it’s key to get the right size.
You never know, their feet could have grown over the holidays, so be sure to check our simple step-by-step measuring guide here.
Top Tip: Remember, your kids’ feet grow at different rates so don’t be surprised if one is bigger than the other! If that’s the case, always take the longest foot as your guide.
Got their size? Good!
Keep the teachers happy and pick triple black for their day-to-day kicks. We know that might sound boring and all the kids will be wearing the same, but our range has stacks of different styles to make them stand out.
For a premium feel, Kickers has dropped timeless shoes for both girls and boys. Featuring low-profile designs and high-top boots, the stitched detailing, signature branding and ultra-durable outsole combine for a classic look.
Kickers not their thing? Street icons have been given a school-ready refresh with the likes of Nike’s Air Force 1 Lows, adidas Originals’ Drop Step Lows, Lacoste’s Gripshots and Vans’ Old Skools in our range.
When PE lessons hit and after-school clubs kick in, we’ve got them just the thing. Our Back To School collection has tonnes of sporty trainers from the biggest names in the fitness game. Whether they’re chasing a new time on the track, practicing their skills on the court or flexing their moves in the gym, there’s something for every type of activity.

Don’t make carrying their school essentials a chore this year! We’ve got statement looks for the corridors so they can go from the classroom to the hall with their books, pencil cases and lunch bag safe and secure. Pack away the staples with a range of classic designs, bold prints and oversized branding in our backpack range.
Our accessory collection doesn’t stop there though! Make your little one king of the pitch with the latest footballs, stock up on their everyday staples with multipacks of socks and keep them shaded from the sun in fresh caps from New Era.
When the weather starts to dip later in the year, but it’s not cold enough to go big coat mode, cop a lightweight jacket for their lunchtime look. Perfect for the autumn and spring months, our collection of windbreakers delivers retro designs and outdoor inspo.
By the time winter comes around and it calls for something a lil’ bit warmer, grab the kids some snug style with a padded jacket. Bringin’ insulated heat without the added weight, adidas, The North Face and McKenzie are setting them up for frosty walks to and from school.
